Tlir t'AHMKRS' CONVENTION.
.'phinofiei.u, April 3 The farmers'
convention reassembled at theopera-liouss
at V.-.'iO this morning. Sonator Castle be
ing called upon, addressed tho convention
expressing sympathy with, and concur
rence in the movement for relief from tho
unjust exactions of tho railroads, and urg
ing upon the armors united and persistent
Letter sympathizing with the objects
of tlo convention wero read from several
gontlemen, and from tho Western Freight
association of Now York,
A resolution was olTored and adopted,
rocommcndlng to tho farmers of Illinois
the keeping of a farm expanse account
during-tlio present and succeeding soafou,
itiordar that.lhtt actual cost of production
may tut estimated nnd made public, fur
Uiu purboso of reaching tho fact, nnd
cquitaVlo remuneration therefore lo
farmers of tho state.
S. M. Smith says this convention was
culled solely to organut) the struggle of
farmers with railroad, and nil other
questions or issues which have been
brought In, worn simply designed to dis
tract tho attention of the farmers from the
real issuyi, and to dlvldd thorn tu tho
fight upon thorn. Ho roforrod particularly
to the Illinois river iinprovcniout project,
which, ho declared, wna in Intorcit of a
single county, also, declared the rcsolu
favoring tho repeal of larill'im Iron,
tool, etc., hai no place In this convention,
aod bu movod tho reconaldoratlon of tho
vote by which It was adopted.
After tin irregular und excited dulmto, ii
i veto whs taken and decided by tho chair-
ninn iu tho aiUrmalivo. A motion was
then made tu rcconsldor the voto, by
vyhlch the resolution censuring members

dent of (ho United Slates for signing tho
bill Increislng the salaries, was yesterday
ndoptel. This motion was also declared
carried, and a motion was then mado and
carried lo postpono indefinitely any
further consideration of both resolutions
II. Liwrenco ontercd ft protost In be-
hair of tho farmers' association, of which
he was a delegate, against tho notion of the
convention in reconsidering the resolution.
The msjirity of tho delegates had gono !
home when this resolution hid been
adopted separately, as a wbolo by the con
vention ycsterdiy, and hn bollovcd that
the present meeting had no right to undo
th'j work of the convention. The sptakor
wai constantly interrupted, and a scene of
groat disorder and confusion prevailed.
The presiding oWcor had very little con
trol over the convention and it vas some
minutes before nppToxlmatloi"to urdcr
was restored; finally, n delegate ollercd
the following resolution, which was
Resolved, That any legislation that Is
not la";d on the Eleventh artlclo of our
tBtn constitution. entitled "railroads," will
not mnit tho necessities of tho producors
In confining monopolies to n reasonable
maximum of freight and passenger tantr,
and to prevent unjust discrimination, nnd
that such maximum rates should bo fixed
by legislative enactment as directed by
our istrtte constitution.

or fix woeks in pleatant campaigning
along tho charming border.
While in the city yesterday tho distin

woro strongly urged to prolong their stay,
o that thny might, more fully appreciate

THE BEECH EU SCANDAL
CATIIKBINE K. BUKCHEP. OK
Mrs. Deecher makes this appeal to tho
ladUi of New Turk ;
Nently two years ago, at tho request of
trlend who hai perfect confidence in her
truth and purity, I accepted mi invita
tion from Victoria Woodliull to ride wilh
her in Central pars. Tho result was an
impression that she was either insane or
the napless victim or tnalignani spirits.
For she ca mly informed me that several
distinguished editors, clergymen, and
lady authors of this city, torus of them
my personal friend, and all nf them
modli "i uomosuc purity ana virtue, not
oLiy bold hsr opinions on Ira love, but
prtctisea accoraiiigiy, ana vnai ii vras oniy
a IftCK Ol moral courag3 which proyuuiuu
their onen avowal of such cninlons.
finca tbnl interview, this womn or her
associates hove boen carrying out a plan
for making money by maligning or threat
ening conrpicuoua persons of auch purity
and sonsibility that it would bo expectea
thov or their friend would pay large
sums rather than come In collision with
such antagonist and their filthy woap
ons. Huch on operation carried out In
Now York wou d extend Indefinitely.
Tho proper way of meeting this evil Is to
urcura ttin enforcement ol au existing jaw.
by which an oQlcer of tho slate, una not
tho person assailed, may prosecute any
wno circulate aspersious oi unarnctur
which thnv cannot urovo to bo truo, it bo
inc made, In such cases as this, a peniten
tiary oconco. American women possess a
nower little aporociated or exercised
for it Is certain that thern it no boned
clent law which they would unlto in ask
ing to havo enacted or enrorceu wnicn
would not readily bo eranted. For this
reason the influence of the ladies of this
city I besought to secure In this conspic
uous case the enforcement of she most
cruel slander that many have alrcndy iuf-
fared, and which It still inroaieni'.g to
other. At tho samo tlmo our clorymon
can boontreated to lend their cj-oppcra-
tlun by teaching from tho pupil (wnat
many 'do not know) thot helping to circu
late the aspersion of character which

the elaest of twelvo children, say tho
London 'Telegraph,' lcavec u but threo
survivors amoag a band of nlno brothers
who woro once regarded at Oxford us hav

university. The bishop of Salisbury, Sir
William Denlson, governor-general of
Australia; Mr. Henry Denlson, follow of
all toula', and a some thought, the most

remembered fr his consistent and tnde

one of tho many men who add weight and
dicnity to this houso of commons becauso
they aro high-minded, thoroughly honest
and sincore. Mr. John Evelyn Donison,
always a moderate liberal, was faithful
without being subsorvient to his party;

CAN THIS BE LUCCA?
From tho New York Dally Graphic, March
Since her first appearance in the organ
Jolt of tho church of St. Charles, in
Vienna in 18SC, to supply the place of a
famous prima donna, Paulino Lucca has
enjoyed uninterruptedly the good of tho
world at well at itt apptauso of her won
derful abilities. Out her life, like thoso of
to. many of her profession, has not been
without it f arrows and bitter disappoint
ment. The'world well remember her heroic
devotion to her terribly wounded husband,
liaron Rabden, in Metz, whero he had
been taken prisoner by the French, nt a
timo, too, whon sho was herself entitled
to tho tonderest caro and solicitude, in
stead of tho anxiety and exertion incident
to attondanco at tho bedside of a sick hus
band. In view of this, and of a life filled
with unobstrusive, womanly virtues, tho
publlo will bo sorry to hoar of a circum
stance thai would appear to unveil a per
iod of undeserved tinhapplncss in her
It is, indeed, quite possiblo that tho in
fo'enco which lorcet itself on tho mind
after a consideration of the singular chain
of coincidences detailed below may prove
to bo quite erroneous, but the occurrences
narrated are so interesting in connection
with each other that tho public Is entitled
to hoar of them as a matter of new, even
though their rohearsal shall go merely to
make up anothor of tho many chapters ot
logical, yet mistaken iuferoncus In the his
tory of human life.
In the county clork's olllce thero was
tiled tho l'Jth inst.,a complaint in ndivorco
suit, instituted by Maria Pauline von
Rbade against Adolph von Rhade. It sett
forth that the partlet wero married on the
25th of November, 1865, In liorlln, Prus
sia; that during tho year 1870 tbohusband
maintained an Intl.tiaoy with Adolhcid
Orossl, on Mauor street, in Berlin; and
also was faithless at various other places
and place, that on the 12th of December,
1870, a girl was born to the parties in suit;
that since the 10th of Aoril 1870. the
plaintiff has refusod tolivo with the defen
dant at wire; tnat since tue mth ufb'tp.
tember, 1872, the hat lived iu New York,
and it a citizen of tho stato. For these
reason alio applies to the sunromn court
for a full divorce, and also for tho custody
Royond tho similarity of name', tbcro Is
nothing in this complaint thr.t
would connect it with the famou opera
singer; but, singularly enough, la the
formal affidavit a to the truth of tho maU
ter itated in the r.oinplaint, and which
accompanies tho complaint a filed, aftor
tho compllaniint' name, which It is writ
ton nut in full, " Maria Pauline von
Rhade," the word "Lucca" ha been
written and then crowed out with heavy
stroke of tho pen and a copious flow of
Ink until it Ii icaruely leglbU, tod evi.
denlly It was intended by tb.3 writer to be
niiltj. Illncrllttn. I
What this mean it, of course, left to
Paulluo Lucca, with her father, mother,
and llttlo girl, ha gone to Philadelphia U
till a proresstunal eiigagomeni, uer
house, No. 17 Katl Fourteenth street, is
vacant and to let. Her friend either
know nothing of the suit, or refuse to tell
wnat they know. Uesiues the coincidence
of the similarity of names, and the care
ful crossing out of thu word "Lucca" In
the afildavit, It appear also that the at
torney for the complaint in tho ce, Rich
ard a. Newcombe, No. 293 Rroadway, Is
also attorney for Pauline Lucca,
Mr. Nuwcombq insists, however, that
the plaintiff and Madame Lucca are ono
anu tuo tame person, lie reiuses, ironi

proof that tboy am not Identical, but as
serts that plaintiff is an Austrian by
birth, is a lady of wealth, and is engaged
in no proicssiun or occupation irom wnicn

llhade's llttlo girl. He say that one of
hi clients Is twenty-five years old. and tho
other thirty, and that ho bolieves Li.cca to
bo a Prussian by birth. When requested
to explain tho appoarancu and crossing
out of the namo "Lucca" in thu affidavit,
ho said that Lo was unaware thai it was
there. Tho papers filed in tho county
clerk' offico were copies made by hii
clerk, and the only way ho could account
for the coincidence was, that it was n mis
tako, on thu part of the clerk, which
might havo arisen from his having to copy
the contracts with Maretzak and others
of Lucca' legal papers, and as tho first
names were similar, Lo might inadvert
ently have put in tho name hn was so ac
customed to writo.
